Research output: Patent


An electrode assembly for a myoelectric prosthesis allowing at least partial decoupling of the movement of the at least one electrode from the electrode housing case and from the prosthesis socket through the mounting of the at least one electrode using at least one biasing element. This allows the at least one electrode to be forced into contact with the patient in the target area using a moveable pressure application structure reducing/eliminating socket motion artifacts because the pressure is transferred toward the target area but the at least one electrode is not otherwise constrained to minimise or avoid the at least one electrode being dragged across the target area through the mounting to the prosthesis socket which causes socket motion artifacts.
